Team Up Event’s was very privileged to assist United Airlines and ATEED Celebrate The Big Picture at The Hilton Auckland recently. On the 1st of July 2016 the very first United Airlines flight from San Francisco to Auckland departed to mark the beginning of a new connection between the West Coast of America and the gem of the South Pacific.
United Airlines and ATEED Celebrate The Big Picture
With 50 guests in Auckland from United Airlines to mark the inaugural flight, Auckland Tourism Events and Economic Development “Teamed Up” to take the celebrations to new heights with The Big Picture. A custom image was designed pre-event to represent the connection between the 2 great cities and also mark the significance of the very first flight.
A host of local tourism operators joined the delegates for the event and quickly put their American guests at ease in regards to the scale of the challenge ahead with a positive kiwi can do attitude. Broken into 9 teams, each responsible for painting and drawing 2 canvases (without ever seeing the full image), delegates made their way to the respective team stations and it was time to get down to business!
As local Maori songs and instruments filled the room with live background music, it was a hive of activity! Delegates began to communicate, collaborate and create as the project was brought to life. With initial lines appearing on blank canvases and colours being matched at a fast pace this really was a race against the clock to complete all 18 Canvases.
Teams began to hand in their completed paintings and then refreshed with morning tea. During this stage the framing process began behind closed doors in preparation for the ‘grand reveal”. The final image stood proudly measuring 1.5m high by 3m wide for all to see. United Airlines and ATTED had now celebrated The Big Picture.
